It is possible to compute numbers larger than can be written

using normal mathematics.

There is an algorithm that is used to compute the decimal

expansion of pi.

It is easy to compute the sum of all the counting numbers from

one to 100. Add the highest and lowest, and you will get 101. Add

the next highest, 99, and the next lowest, two, and you will again

get 101. If you continue in this way to compute the sums, you will

have the sum 101, computed 50 times. Now compute the product of 50

and 101, and you will get 5050. This is the sum of all the counting

numbers from one to 100.
